The Kunstnerhuset (Artist's House) was a wonderful place to place while traveling through Svolvaer. We spent one night in the Artist's House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is not a typical hotel - many of the guests are artists - there for a long period of time. I think of it like a bed & breakfast, without the breakfast. You are staying in a house with a shared kitchen, living room, and dining room. You must go shopping and prepare food on your own, or go to a restaurant in Svolvaer. You'll be about a 10 minute walk from the center of town and stores.
We stayed in March, and there was only 1 other person staying there and he was there for several weeks. Bente (the manager) was super friendly and helpful when we asked her questions - She even let us use her laundry facilities at no cost.
There was another couple that arrived on the day that we left.
The views of this hotel cannot be beat. The landscape of Svolvaer is amazing. The price of the Kunstnerhuset is much more reasonable than a typical hotel in Svolvaer. I would most definitely stay here again if I found myself in Svolvaer!
